Avocet Dispute

By brian1208
What started as a pair of Avocets feeding quietly side by side turned into a brief but seemingly violent dispute. After a few more seconds of action they returned to feeding side by side again.
I don't know what provoked it but I've never seen it before.

Poor light and fast action resulted in less than ideal shots technically but I thought the action sufficiently interesting to record and share it
